Flat out: WinXP, Linux and OSX are those of main interest right now. The OSX porting process was started, but I guess some things are not yet ready, because it has not yet appeared. I guess Carl is not finished fighting the module design. (Doesn't help with Gabriele and Cyphre busy with QTask... grrr :-)) I believe that some ports will be maintained internally by RT while others will be 3rd party ports and I think also it will be important to make the porting process very smooth and extremely well documented, because this is essentially a "build it and they will come" effort. If the process is smooth enough, more people will be able to port R3 to their platform. -- Regards, Henrik Mikael Kristensen
